The Sun Down Motel

This is a pulse racing thriller bordering on horror novel.  I don't think I have read anything like this previously.   It reminds me of going to a horror movie where you want to watch but you don't.  St. James does a wonderful job of creating a tense environment and you as the reader cannot help but feel much of the same fears and curiosity as the  Viv and Carly do.  I enjoyed the parallel timelines that then converged to a cohesive story ending.  The book was very well written and it was easy to relate to the characters and the ethical dilemmas some of them faced.  It definitely pointed out that not everything in life is as straightforward and simple as it seems.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars 

Pulse racing thriller

This is an engrossing novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. The characters have a level of complexity that makes them feel real. They are conflicted about how to handle different scenarios and who to trust. There is a tenacity about Carly and Heather that makes them so strong even though we glimpse the fragile side too. The story is a well written novel with two narrators and two timelines it is very well written and the story is wrapped up quite well at the end

This book is not for those who scare easily or have nightmares based on books they read. If you like thrillers that keep you on the edge of you seat this is a book for you
